You Look at Me Like an Emergency
Exhibition Dates: February 23 - April 6, 2013
Reception & Signing:
Saturday, February 23
6:00 - 8:00 pm
For the past 12 years Cig Harvey has allowed her personal life to inspire her photographic work. Through self portraiture and images of family and friends she meditates on moments of celebration, lingers in moments of uncertainty, and explores relationships between people. The every day experience, the pattern of life is unique but it is shared. We have all experienced moments of elation and frustration, of love and loss, hope and disappointment. There is indeed something familiar and open-ended to the work. In frames where the figure is turned from us we enter with particular ease to the moment. The scenes too often have a universal quality, where diners, stairwells, fields, and waterways could be just down the road from our own home. It is the essence of human experience that is woven into the frames of Harvey's work. With beautiful light, rich color, and sensual curiosity, pose, or framing the works invite.
The new text as Harvey puts it is "A book of photographs and text about a life being lived, it's a map about one women's life but made up of the stuff that is all of our lives. An archetypal quest, a love story, a book of secrets."
Harvey will be present for the opening reception and be available to sign copies of her book.
